Outrunning Karma Lyrics

Outrunning karma, that boy
He's such a charmer, all the
Bugs and their larva follow
Him out to Colorado
Ten-dozen hearts in a bag
Their bodies lyin', he'll drag
Them down to Colorado
A modern desperado
And he'll race for miles through the...

    Its about a boy who loved a girl, and he would change for the girl. The girl was prolly a bully so he became a bully, hey dye his hair blonde, where blue contacts and stuff, He killed his old self for this girl. 'I followed your directions and did everything you asked. the one I killed was me.)

    its about people who have hurt others and they know their time is up example would be when he says last day of sparta. spartans were the most cutthroat ruthless army in the time of greece and rome they killed to kill they were weapons of war and apollo was who they believed in at the fall of sparta (my theory)

    My interpretation is a player.

    "10 dozen heart in a bag, their bodies lying he'll drag" - all the victim hearts the player has broken.

    "He runs because he knows he cannot hide" - he is trying to outrun the karma he will get for breaking the victims hearts.

    "He's never gonna make it, all the
    Poor people he's forsaken, karma
    Is always gonna chase him for his lies" - this part speaks for itself.

    Outrunning karma, that boy
    Can't run no farther, it's the
    Last days of Sparta, follow
    Him down to meet Apollo -

    ( i don't know who apollo is so this is a complete guess) He is trying to return to Apollo asking him to clear his name, his last days of running are aproaching while the karma gets closer to him.

    "And he'll brace for battle in the night
    He'll fight because he knows he cannot hide" - He cannot run anymore, he never had the option to hide, so now he must fight the karma. (Big creds for the second anonymous for the idea of player)

    This song is about a player who broke many girl's hearts. that's why Alec says " 10 dozen hearts in a bag" However he says that Karma will get back to him soon.

    I believe that this song is talking about a mass murderer who is running from the cops so that he doesn't have to go to jail, but the cops won't give up so he has to keep running. He decides to head for Colorado, where he believes they would least expect him to go. But, unfortunately, he doesn't make it to Colorado and the police catch him and he is sentenced to death for all of the people he killed and all of the families that he broke along the way.
